Since Marvel vs Capcom 3‘s release in mid-February, the game has received both critical acclaim and commercial success. Now, Capcom has announced that Marvel vs Capcom 3 has shipped over two million copies.

The third installment in the long running IP was finally released for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 last month. Capcom expressed their delight with the news of the game’s shipped units figure:

With an 11 year gap between the last entry in the Marvel vs. Capcom series, demand for a sequel was at an all-time high, and expectations were soaring. Capitalizing on the resurgence of the fighting game boom that began last year, Marvel vs. Capcom 3 was able to exceed its predecessor and ship 2 million units worldwide

Capcom went on to confirm that additional content – both new characters and costumes – would arrive as downloadable content on the PlayStation Network for Marvel vs Capcom 3.
